Happy New Year

New Year's in Costa Rica
"Life isn't about finding yourself.  Life is about CREATING yourself."  George Bernard Shaw

2011 has been a roller coaster year!  There have been highs and lows and so many decisions to make.  It has been overwhelmingly amazing!

I am so grateful for my family, friends, and the opportunity to fulfill dreams that I thought were just that and no more.  I have learned so much in this amazing year and I am very proud of the decisions we have made together as a family.  From standing behind what our core beliefs were to standing up for our son, we stayed strong together and then decided to make this huge leap that is long term travel.

We have discovered that the tough times are as valuable and the joyous ones, maybe even more fulfilling and certainly the ones that give the most strength of character.  We have showed each other our strengths and weaknesses and accepted those things in each other.  And most importantly we have seen that life is about the journey and that we cannot go out and find what we are made of, we need to create what it is that we want to become.

Although we started our life changing journey over 5 years ago, this nomadic life has just begun for us.  I can only dream about what the new year will hold for us, but I know it will bring adventure, joy, and fulfillment.  I know we will all learn new things about ourselves, each other, and the world at large.  I know there will be tough days but that we will grow because of it.  It will be wonderful and I know how lucky I am!

So moving forward in to a new year I wish you all an amazing journey filled with whatever it takes to not only find what you want but to go one step further and CREATE it!  Happy New Year from our family to yours!
